Virtual community

OpenHIE will host a 3-day virtual community meeting in September

OpenHIE will host a virtual community meeting over three interactive days, September 13, 15 and 21, 2022.

The meeting, “The Journey from Plans to Practice,” will include activities focused on networking, learning from real-world implementations, and participant-led discussions. Between these meeting dates, opportunities will also be available to hold ad hoc meetings and gain access to additional resources.

“Days have been spread out to help accommodate busy schedules and combat video conferencing fatigue,” said Paul Biondich, MD, MS, research scientist and director of global health informatics at the Regenstrief Institute and a key leader of OpenHIE. “This meeting is a fantastic opportunity to share information, gain insight into digital health implementation, and connect with digital health users and experts. Our community is dedicated to improving health outcomes for emerging resource communities. We believe best practices should be shared, not locked away.
